hey.  there were a bunch of threads about it.  generally, people say that it's the best set of snowboard instructional videos out there, and sometimes they upgrade you (give you free, extra videos, or a discount) if you email them and ask them about it in advance.  check the search bar..

No Sig... I'm just not that witty or creative

Just be aware that you get spammed like 20 times a month if you make the mistake of signing in to watch one of their videos.

I purchased the download version and put it straight on my iphone.

Haven't got the chance to practice though since snowboard season is over. I've reviewed their board slide videos and I think they are pretty good. Their tips seems to answer some of the questions/problems i have with board slide front and back. I just gotta test them out when winter is here again.

They are pretty good about breaking everything down.
Bring it hard or don't bring it at all.

i just bought the downloadable version a few weeks ago. I had signed up with the site like a month ago or so and they had emailed me with a 30% off coupon (they have sent 20% before, and when they sent 30% i jumped on it)
 
so far, i am VERY pleased with the purchase. I think the total was a little over $30, and thats two jumping dvds, two jibbing dvds, a manual, and a 1-year subscription (which gets you their two buttering videos). Lots of attention to detail and the manuals are surprisingly good and detailed.
 
they have free videos on youtube, so check it out to see if you like them. I think their backside 3 and the frontside board videos on youtube were particularly good, and basically the reason i went ahead and bought the videos from them.

I think if you were going to pay for the subscription, just shell out the few extra bucks to download the entire freestyle package because you get 1 year free subscription with purchase.

This.

i got the dvd package last year and it was pretty phenomenal. it was extra $$ to get the actual dvds, but that package gives you the physical dvds+the same content in a downloadable format, so it's like you get 2 in 1. i'm just mad that i got it before their 1 year free subscription. $30 for just that seemed pretty steep, but now that i've waited long enough, they have so many new vids it might be worth it, since i liked how their dvd stuff was

then again, you could always just watch stylin doug fagel...

For anyone interested in buying these vids, here is the email I just got from them with a 20% coupon, enjoy!  If you're on the fence like I was, get the vids, they are of excellent quality, the best I've ever seen.
 
 
That's right folks, you can get 20% off all our rad snowboarding tutorials before the fat man wiggles his way down your chimney and his elves terrorize your dog.
And since Santa Nev has already had too much eggnog, he's even letting our fellow rippers apply the discount to our brand new limited edition Snowboard Addiction "Let's Go Snowboarding" T-Shirts!

Just enter discount code "SAXMAS" when checking out, but hurry, the discount is only good until the 25th!
